Cook County sheriff's deputies have a 26-year-old man in custody after a stabbing Sunday night near Arlington Heights.

Cook County Sheriff spokeswoman Christina Davalle said the incident took place at 10:23 p.m. at an apartment complex on the 2400 block of Randall Lane in unincorporated Cook County.

Fire officials said early Monday that three people were injured in the stabbing, but Davalle said only two people were injured, with one being taken to Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights.

She said the 24-year-old victim who was stabbed in the chest is expected to make a full recovery.

She said two roommates were hosting a neighbor when an argument started. The roommates asked the neighbor to leave, Davalle said, but after leaving, he returned a short time later with a knife.

He stabbed one of the roommates before trying to stab the other, a 27 year old, she said.

The second victim was treated at the scene by paramedics. The attacker was not injured in the scuffle and was not treated by paramedics, Davalle said.

Long Grove rescue officials said they were forced to wait outside until the scene was secured by Cook County sheriff's deputies. They started treatment on the victims at 10:31 p.m., the release said.

Davalle said charges against the alleged attacker are expected to be filed with the Cook County state's attorney's office Tuesday morning.
